From Tech Princess, Dec. 5, 2018: L’Italia firma l’accordo internazionale di collaborazione scientifica e tecnologica con gli Stati Uniti per la realizzazione del PIP-II, un nuovo acceleratore lineare di protoni per l’esperimento DUNE
From MeteoWeb, Dec. 5, 2018: L’Italia con l’INFN fornirè contributi determinanti per la costruzione dell’acceleratore di particelle che sarà il fulcro del progetto PIP-II
The agreement launches a multinational collaboration to build a powerful new accelerator at DOE’s Fermilab complex. Italy and its National Institute of Nuclear Physics will provide major contributions to the construction of the 176-meter-long superconducting particle accelerator that is the centerpiece of the PIP-II project.
From Meteoweb, July 26, 2018: Il Progetto PIP-II è un passo cruciale per la realizzazione del futuro esperimento DUNE che sarà realizzato nella struttura sperimentale a lunga distanza (LBNF) progettata dal Fermilab.
From WBBM Newsradio: Aug. 6, 2018: Fermilab has preliminary approval for its plan to upgrade its particle accelerator, which uses streams of neutrinos for a wide variety of physics research, by the middle of the next decade.
From Kane County Connects, Aug. 1, 2018: Fermilab recently received the latest in a series of approvals from the U.S. Department of Energy for its Proton Improvement Plan II, a $600 million project that will see a new 176-meter-long linear accelerator built to replace the current one, constructed in the late 1960s.
From Patch, July 30, 2018: Batavia’s Fermilab has just been approved to move forward with an accelerator project that will create more powerful particle beams to “generate an unprecedented stream of neutrinos.”
